About

The Lettuce Grow Project is an agricultural initiative to teach gardening skills to youth and young adults with developmental disabilities.

Through The Lettuce Project we hope to build sustainable community relationships for our team members; provide locally grown agricultural products that can feed into the local food economy; and increases job skills for young adults with Developmental Disabilities.

There are learning opportunities in all aspects of The Lettuce Project. Project team members will be learning: how to set up a garden, how to grow plants, how to maintain a garden, how to package, market and deliver agricultural products to a local CSA, and business skills that could allow them to become gardeners and sell their own vegetables from home.

We need Volunteers to help with Curriculum Modification and Adaptation, Marketing, Social Media, Various tasks in the Garden, fundraising and grant writing.
